The Life Of A New Hampshire Hen

                                                                               The Life Of A New Hampshire Hen     Once upon a time... There was a Delaware Dorking rooster that bred with a New Hampshire hen. In the flock, there were a Buff Orpington , 2 NH, 2 Black Australorp's and the rooster. The Buff passed away. The only hen that went broody was a BA. She was broody for too long. My Dad and I were starting to think... Was the rooster fertile? So, we ordered eggs.   A day or two passed... I heard chirping, I run up to the top of the barn. I saw a yellow... read more

Flashy Ember

This is Ember, my year-old Belgian D'anvers rooster. He was a completely impromtu rescue, along with Scorch and Firestar, that I confiscated by hitting a guy with my purse. The requested tale: My mom and I were driving through the middle of the woods a few towns away from ours. We come upon this short, fat Italian guy darting across the road in pursuit of some escapee bantams. We pull over, and I, being the chicken fanatic of the family, was the one to go confront the guy, noting the bashed open chicken crate that seemed to have been thrown from the truck. "Hello, sir.... read more

~My Coop~ By MissNutmeg

Hi Y’all! I thought I’d introduce my flock,       Alexander:     Breed:Buff Orpington Age: Two yrs Personality:Sweet, Generous, Protective, and a bit sassy.  Comments:  Alexander is a very docile rooster, but he doesn't exactly enjoy being picked up. It's just heart warming when watching him share his snacks with his hens.    Nutmeg:     Breed:Buff Orpington Age:Two yrs Personality: Docile, Sweet and Loud Comments: I named my profile after her. Nutmeg is a very special hen, she loves hanging out on laps. But she can also be a bit jealous. There was... read more
